Antique sewing machine to go on display at Mersing Museum

JOHOR BAHRU (BERNAMA) – A 40-year-old sewing machine will be the newest item to be on display at the Mersing Museum, which was opened by the Sultan of Johor Sultan Ibrahim Almarhum Sultan Iskandar, Malaysia in May 2016.

In a posting on his official Facebook site yesterday, Sultan Ibrahim decreed that the antique sewing machine be showcased at the museum.

The sewing machine, which belongs to a 90-year-old woman, was presented to His Royal Highness by her son, Choo Ming Hooi, 62, at Istana Flintstones on Friday.

“I am very grateful to the owner for wanting to show this antique sewing machine to me. It is no longer used by her, and because it is an antique item, it can be kept in a museum,” Sultan Ibrahim said in the posting.
